Was a soccer ball crossed with a football invented?

well the story goes that, when William Web Ellis picked up the soccer ball at the school of rugby in England in the 1824 and started to run with it, the head teacher said to him "if you pick up that ball again I'm going to shove that ball where the sun don't shine. Being a rebel as he was William did pick up that soccer ball again and what happened next is how that football took it's shape.
